    Depends on what ads are running and how much they pay out.

    What is the average pay per click. For my site that get's on average $2 a click, it would be two million dollars a month if every visitor actually clicked an add... do the math.

      This depends on the site niche right? What if its entertainment/celebrity. And Do you know what percent of total unique hits actually click the ads, on average?

    $2m / month? Isn't that assuming every visitor clicks? a 100% CTR? What you make depends on your CTR and your CPC. There could be a pretty big range there.

    There is no such thing as an overall average when it comes to adsense CTR. Each person and each site has their own average, you'll never figure out your own until you do it yourself.

    Assuming a 5% CTR at $1 per click, you would earn $50,000 per month. Of course, it really depends on a lot of different factors so nobody can do anything here except give you assumptions.

    Why you ask? Do you really get that many visits to your site? It really depends on the keywords you're targeting. If the keywords are competitive and people bid a lot of money on clicks, you'll make a ton of money. If not, you'll make less. Common sense but there you go.

      If your website was to get 1 million uniques per month, you wouldn't/shouldn't be spending much time playing around with adsense.

      I'd guess the site would make around $10,000 - $50,000 per month with adsense. It's very difficult to estimate without knowing a typical CTR or CPC for a given website.

    With that much traffic you could probably make a lot more money using methods other than Adsense. Even selling Ad Space directly.

    Enough you would not let anyone know how you are getting that much traffic and you would keep backlinking the site to keep getting more!

    By the way, stop dreaming and make it a reality!!!!!!

    I'd have to say it better be targeted traffic as well or your CTR won't be that high.

      It depends on the niche of the site. Music downloads is like $.10 a click. Stock trading is like up to $4 a click. Then do the math based on 1% CTR.

    Way too many factors to calculate anything close to a reasonable answer.

    For example, I moved one ad block on one of my sites from the right hand to the left hand side of the page, and I doubled my adsense earnings immediately!!

    With that much traffic you can as well get offers from companies to put up ads in your website and you can charge them a handsome amount. Just auction off the ad places and you can make a very big fortune.

    Visitor location has a lot to do with it, too. If they're coming from Turkey, the ad quality wont be the same as if they're coming from a Tier 1 country like USA, Canada, UK, etc.

    if you have so many visitors, you might consider building a mailing list and/or switch your adsense ads to affiliate links... worth testing

    yeah this depends on many factors

    I shouldn't be sharing this but here is my secret to 100% CTR...

    it depends on how many people click on your ads and how much google pay per click. I heard that google even pay for imps,
    you can get a good revenue

    With 1 million pageviews, I expect your article content will be a little diversified in terms of average CPC (or earnings).

    The old rule is that you will make in dollars each month, the same as the number of visitors each day. In other words. For each 30 visitors you will average a dollar.

    So, you should be making 33.333 dollars with 1 million visitors.

    But that rule is a few years old, and the earning potential and CTR is different for each site, and for each niche. Look at your earnings per thousands when you are getting substansial traffic, and you will have a better indicator.

    I love how everyone is answering with the same answers.

    If my blog got 1,000,000 unique visitors per month I would not use Adsense on it, I would sell ad space instead and earn a lot more.Top blogs in the IM niche often sell ad space and there is a good reason for it.

    Totaly depends upon your KW and niche. Second on optimization and ad placement.
